Chiefs sign former Cards WR Jerheme Urban

Kansas City signed former Cardinals wide receiver Jerheme Urban to an undisclosed deal on Thursday.

Urban (6’3”, 207-pounds) compiled 87 catches for 1,231 yards in a career that started in 2003 with the Seattle Seahawks. He was in Seattle from 2003-2005, spent part of the 2006 season on the Dallas Cowboys practice squad, then played for Arizona from 2007-2009. Urban’s resume includes 47 games played, with six starts and six postseason appearances, including Super Bowl XLIII. Jerheme’s production peaked in 2008 with the Cardinals when he had 34 catches for 448 yards and four touchdowns.

It was in Urban’s best interest to leave the Cardinals organization because there was very little room for him to grow on the dept chart. Even with Boldin’s departure, Fitzgerald, Breaston and Doucet are firmly in place ahead of him. In addition, Arizona’s extremely pass happy offense will most likely dial down a notch with Warner retired, an unproven Matt Leinart at the helm, and Beanie Wells running the ball. Urban would have had a hard time getting onto the field in 2010 as a Cardinal.
